200. A party who amends a pleading must notify the amended pleading to the other parties and file a copy at the office of the court. The other parties have 10 days to express their opposition in writing, notify it to the other parties and file a copy at the office of the court.
If no opposition is filed, the amended pleading is accepted; if an opposition is filed, the party who intends to amend the pleading applies to the court for a determination.
The time allowed for answering an amended pleading is agreed between the parties or, failing that, determined by the court, and runs either from the date of notification of the amended pleading or from the date of the judgment authorizing the amendment, as the case may be.
